Choosing a Location

Why is location so important? Physical location is not just where you are; it is how your business is regulated.

Whether you are building, renting, working out of your home or working virtually, your business location dictates everything from local zoning and permitting requirements to the type of licenses you need to operate.

The Business Assistant will link you to the economic development department in the city or town you choose so you can determine local zoning requirements and regulations.

You can also visit our RI Business Data Hub to compare employment, education, income levels, and types of business industries registered in each Rhode Island municipality.
